A mortgage company is seeking to foreclose on the Hanover home of Paul S. Riggins, whose wife disappeared in 1996.
Riggins and his wife, Nancy, co-signed the mortgage in 1994 and owe their lender $151,685, according to court records.
Riggins was released in December from the Howard County Detention Center after serving a year for sexually assaulting the family baby sitter.
Nancy Riggins was a cashier for 10 years at the Giant Food store in the Burtonsville Shopping Center.
She was last seen at a Columbia swimming pool on the evening of July 1, 1996.
There have been no arrests in the case.
